The nail in the ampersand
How’s this for an opulent piece of typographic art. I’ll admit that I can’t quite decipher the meaning of it, the semiotics are a little over my head.
New York’s political magazine The New Republic approached me to design a trademark ampersand for them. I accepted and created this mighty marble-and-gold rendition of a snake nailed to a sinking skull, coiling into the “Amperxandt” form. A lot of symbolism going on here.
From a single pumpkin seed to delicate butterfly wings, no canvas is too teeny for micro artist Hasan Kale. The talented — not to mention patient — artist paints realistic renderings of his hometown of Istanbul on unexpected objects.
Kale’s unique oeuvre sets the artist apart from other miniature mavens dealing in more traditional canvases.
These Brazilian kids have been learning English by gently correcting celebrities’ grammar on Twitter.
I love these children
